The Jewish Association for Developmental Disabilities, a nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to helping all people with developmental disabilities and their families, will hold its annual walkathon on Sunday, October 25, at 11 a.m. The walk, to be held rain or shine, will be at the Englewood Boat Basin recreational area in Englewood.
J-ADD serves more than 1,000 families in Bergen and Passaic counties. The agency provides respite care to families who have members with developmental disabilities who live at home; housing for adults with developmental disabilities; and advocacy, community awareness, and holiday celebrations to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. J-ADD also oversees the Fiddle Foundation Hotline, an online resource that links people on the autism spectrum with services nationwide.
All walkathon proceeds will help to fund J-ADD’s programs. For information, call (201) 457-0058, ext. 13, or go to www.J-ADD.org.
